I wanted to tell you about two quick tips/ideas.
1- Writing little notes to yourself or your baby on your freezer bags of milk. I did this randomly a few times but now as we’re defrosting them I’m reminiscing and wishing I did this more:
2- My son is being a pain in the ass when it comes to taking medicine for this ear infection. He’s on antibiotics every 12 hours so that’s 5ml in a syringe that I’ve gotta get in his mouth 2xs a day. Then Tylenol or Ibuprofen every 4 (if needed) for pain. He is clenching his teeth and closing his lips as soon as he sees me coming near him with it. The amount of wasted meds he has spit back out is ridiculous! My friend finally said :
Pull back the side of his cheek/lip and squirt it in there.
Wouldn’t you know it, works everytime. Smh hopefully this helps life be a little easier for you!
(Edit) Sometimes I put it in his bottle if I know it’s a time where he will finish one – who knows if that actually gives the same potency of the med but it seems to still be successful too.
